Bolton Clarke expands west

Aged care provider Bolton Clarke Group has expanded its services to Western Australia following a merger with Acacia Living Group.

Aged care and retirement living provider Bolton Clarke Group has acquired west Australian counterpart Acacia Living Group.

Acacia Living Group has three aged care homes, seven retirement villages, two respite centres and home care services in Perth and regional WA from the state’s south-west to Geraldton. 

Acacia Living Group was previously known as RSL Care WA while Bolton Clarke was born out of the 2015 merger between RSL Care in Queensland and RDNS in Victoria.

The merger expands Bolton Clarke Group’s presence to Western Australia and adds to its existing 25 retirement living communities and 25 residential aged care homes in Queensland and New South Wales.

The organisation also provides home nursing and care services in Qld, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania and in New Zealand through RDNS NZ.

The group also includes Bolton Clarke Research Institute and aged care training provider Altura Learning.

Bolton Clarke Group CEO Steve Muggleton said brining the two like-minded organisations together  would strengthen and grow service offerings for older people in WA.

He said the fact that both organisations shared similar histories and values and offered a full suite of care services made the merger a natural fit and an easy transition.

Bolton Clarke Group has a $700 million development pipeline of projects across Victoria, NSW and Queensland. Its first Victorian retirement village, which includes 81 independent living units in St Kilda, is nearing completion.
